2010 revealed tuberculosis verrucous (48%) as predominant clinical type [7]; however, on referencing to earlier studies, Lupus vulgaris was the most common (64%), followed by tuberculosis verrucosa cutis (19%) and papulonecrotic tuberculid (4%) [8].
Therefore, a diagnosis of lupus vulgaris was made for the left helix; both earlobes were diagnosed with discoid lupus erythematosus, and both thighs with papulonecrotic tuberculid.{Figure 1}

Previously thought to be a tuberculid but now believed to be a variant of granulomatous rosacea.6 Actually, LMDF may be considered a distinct entity.5,6 The etiology remains unknown.1-3,6 Although, it is a self-limiting disease, the treatment options are tetracyclines, isotretinoin, dapsone and prednisolone.1-3 Clofazimine 100 mg three times weekly for 8 weeks has also shown successful results.1-3
